2010: An Exchange Odyssey

The next rev of Exchange, Exchange 2010, is now in beta and is due later this year. This version can run in your datacenter or in a cloud. The software also has a raft of unified communications features such as built-in voicemail and instant messaging.

IE haters will love the fact that the Web client is now fully compatible with Safari and Firefox. I use Firefox and never had a problem with the Web client.

For archiving, PST files -- which confused even the smartest end users -- have been replaced by an "integrated archive." I'd upgrade for just this one feature alone!
